Summer Hair Forecast Continues…

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Sexy Bedhead – Think Brigitte Bardot, who wouldn’t want to look like her?   So this look is so-o-o easy, just roll out of bed and go.  Don’t you wish! So the truth, it really isn’t that hard to obtain, it just takes some patience and time.  First saturate damp hair with Aveda’s volumizing tonic. Then […]

Summer Hair Forecast Curls, Curls, Curls!

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Summer is on her way and I am ecstatic!  I love the casual beachy looks.  Put on a floppy hat, let your curls shine, add a little lip gloss (I like Aveda’s nourish-mint lip color ) and a cute outfit and you are ready to go.  So easy, right? Well… not really.  If your hair is naturally […]

This past February, Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda, died of pancreatic cancer.  I never had the pleasure of meeting him face to face, but I wish I had.  Horst started his career as a hairdresser and ended his career a millionaire. I was thinking about how much he impacted my life.  When I began my career […]

Springing Fashion Forward

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Now that March has arrived and the time has moved forward, warm weather is finally almost here to stay! My favorite way to say hello to higher temps is putting on a fun and flirty dress and getting my hair off of my shoulders. This strapless sweetheart dress from #francescascollections is perfect whether it’s paired with sneakers […]

Happy Birthday Collage Salon!

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Today is Collage’s birthday.  She is 24 years old.  Twenty four years ago, I thought I was old.  Can you even imagine how dumb I was to think that.  I was so worried to open Collage.  I thought I was too old to be starting a new chapter in my life. (How silly of me)  Anyhow, […]
